Well here it is fitted and I absolutely love it!! It far exceeds expectations. I love the glass especially. Its often a worry buying from the internet as you never get a real feel as to how something will look on arrival. The guys that fitted it were pleasantly surprised at the quality and finish and it fitted perfectly. One of them took a flyer so expect more orders soon. Again I would like to thank you for the service provided and would not hesitate to recommend you to others
When measuring for your new Composite Door, remember the door comes pre-hung in its own PVCu frame with all the hinges and locks already fitted and the tolerances between door and frame have already been taken into account.
Measure in millimetres from brick to brick and deduct 15-20 mm. This will allow a small amount of movement to ensure the new frame can be fitted perfectly upright. If your house is rendered or pebble dashed it may be necessary to remove a small section to expose the edge of the existing frame.
Measure from the top of the existing frame to the under side of the sill and deduct 30mm. The reason for this deduction is that your existing sill is most probably 45mm thick and your new PVCu sill is 30mm thick.
To ensure that your new door will miss any carpet on the inside if you deduct 30mm and lift the door and frame up you can still use the low PVCu threshold. Remember its always better to be a bit small rather than a bit big
